In a recent segment of The O’Reilly Factor, Judge Jeanine Pirro lit into the Black Lives Matter movement and said the foundation for the entire movement is based on lies.
“The whole concept of Black Lives Matter, the genesis, it began in Ferguson with Michael Brown and with Trayvon Martin,” Judge Pirro said. “Trayvon Martin, the defendant was acquitted. In Ferguson, with Michael Brown, they didn’t even bring charges up against him. The Justice Department couldn’t bring anything against him. So, it was based on a lie: ‘Hands up, don’t shoot.’ Now, this whole Black Lives Matter movement is based on something that is not true.”
Pirro later went on to say, “Michael Brown was a thug who engaged in a strong arm robbery and reached for a cop’s gun,” and noted a lack of “moral equivalency” between the black men who were killed by police officers and officers who were slain in the line of duty.
